Soon all of us were waving our arms and rocking our heads back and forth so we could see our shadows moving.

I can't think of a better way to be in this life than "easily amused"! I LOVE it! Maybe that's why you get along so well with our crazy family...we easily amuse you! Haha!

What a cute story!! I think everyone should be "easily amused". What a blessing it is to be able to enjoy the little things and have fun!
